Facts about Leon

  • Breed: Belgian Shepherd Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
As a young dog, Leon survived on his own for several months until the dog warden finally captured him in a humane trap and brought him to TriCounty Animal Rescue Center. Leon has been with us about a year now, and is about 3 years old. Leon has a deformed rear foot and he sometimes favors it in the yard, holding it up while he walks or plays, but it does not slow him down at all. With those he knows and trusts, Leon is an absolute gentleman, taking treats gently from our hands, letting us hug his head and stroke him, fetching his ball for us and coming when called, lying quietly in his kennel, listening to our voices while we feed and mop. With those he does not know, however, Leon is loud, boisterous, and jumpy; he pretends to be a lion that needs to be tamed. What Leon needs is simply “time to trust.” If you are someone who understands the value of a diamond in the rough, if you enjoy restoring living things, if you have the time to visit Leon regularly, to gain his trust, and develop a relationship with him, then you will be richly rewarded with the love and devotion of a very good, handsome, smart, and playful dog.

About Tri-County Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tri-County Animal Rescue Center rescues needy cats and dogs, and provides the quality care they deserve until we can place them in forever homes where they will be treated as part of the family.

We are committed to helping reduce pet overpopulation by providing access to low-cost spay/neuter programs and educating the public.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Tri-County Animal Rescue Center is located in the former Clarion County Humane Society building at 9562 Route 322 in Shippenville, Pennsylvania. We are a NO KILL facility.
1:00-4:00 & 6:00-8:00 Tuesday thru Friday

PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers who work with our dogs are not always at the rescue center during public hours. Please make an appointment if you wish to be able to take a dog out of its kennel. Thank you!

Our Adoption Process...

Our dog adoption fee is $125 and we require either a spay/neuter deposit of $50 or a certificate for spay/neuter at our vet may be purchased for $100 (unless already spayed/neutered which would change the adoption fee) if the option of the $50 deposit is chosen, it will be returned after proof of the surgery.
Our cat adoption fee is $75 for kittens and $35 for adult cats. The cat adoption fee includes spay or neuter costs. All cats and dogs receive a wellness check and are current on all vaccinations appropriate for their age.

The adoption process includes filling out an adoption application and providing references. Any current pets in the household must be spayed or neutered (unless not recommended by a veterinarian for health reasons) and current on vaccinations.
If living in a rental property, we must obtain permission from the landlord before an adoption can be approved. The dog or cat will be placed with the potential adopter that best matches the needs of the animal.
